1. Meanwhile, Congressman getting fat with "Republican Socialism for Big Ag FatCats"

Welfare for the Wealthy (today's NYT).

"...This would be just another amusing/depressing example of an elected official ignoring a huge part of his constituency (about one in seven Americans rely on food stamps, though itís one in five in Tennessee, the second highest rate in the South), were not (Republican Congressman) Fincher himself a hypocrite.

"For the God-fearing Fincher is one of the largest recipients of U.S.D.A. farm subsidies in Tennessee history; he raked in $3.48 million in taxpayer cash from 1999 to 2012, $70,574 last year alone. The average SNAP recipient in Tennessee gets $132.20 in food aid a month; Fincher received $193 a day. (You can eat pretty well on that.)..."
